Farm Power?s Rexville, WA anaerobic dairy digester transforms cow manure into both a source of electricity and a source of economic vitality for the region?s agricultural community. The dairy digester is capable of producing up to 750 kilowatts of electricity from burning the captured methane ? or approximately the energy needed to power 500 homes ? and will provide electricity to PSE?s Green Power Program. With more than 24,000 participating PSE customers, the Green Power Program is among the largest of the nation?s 600 similar efforts.

?Our Rexville dairy digester is the result of many state, community and business leaders coming together to help turn our vision of a renewable energy facility into a new source of opportunities for Skagit County farmers,? said Kevin Maas. ?Plus we reduce greenhouse gas emissions by thousands of tons per year.?

Please join us for our first meeting of the new year, we look forward to seeing you there.
